to force a vote on president obama's 2014 budget. oh, wait, there is no 2014 president obama budget. the president missed a deadline set by law to submit the plan. but g.o.p. wanted to set up a vote on a blank piece of paper. the congressman joins us, what happened? >> we'll find out later tonight. we offered 34 pages of question marks and you can't offer a blank piece of paper. but in order for an amendment, you have 35 pages and numbers filled in. you look at paul ryan's, the numbers are filled in. we didn't have numbers so we put question marks. >> greta: i find it appalling when people can't meet deadlines. he missed february 4th deadline. he said late march and that's not happening and now april. and totally to me it's such disregard with the law when the law said that. he's not the first one. many presidents before him have blown off this deadline, nonetheless-- >> actually the first president ever. >> greta: to be last, to be last. >> to go after the house or the senate. >> greta: not the first to ignore the deadline. i'm curious, you don't need the president's budget to go f
yet again. >> tonight, presidential priorities, basketball or budget. >> president obama took time out of his busy schedule to fill out the march madness brackets. he continues to break the law, he fails to submit the budget. >> getting the brackets done by not the budget for us. are you as outraged or is it not a big deal? >> i guess o'reilly's colleagues missed his show last night. but did the right thing think that we didn't notice? nice try, but we got you. a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won
serious, because budgets -- >> you're not going to repeal obama care. >> budgets are blue prints and priorities. we lay out. we think obama care should be repealed. the majority of americans agree with us. but we also think tax reforms should happen so you can grow the economy. if you allow these debts to continue to grow, they crowd out the private sector, crowd out the opportunity for small businesses to grow. that's why the economy continues to linger. if we are able to balance the budget, which ours does in ten years, you will unshack this will growth in america. >> david, it's worse than that. their budget is built on a hoax. on the one hand, they say it balances in ten years. on the other hand, they say they'd repeal obama care. the fact is they repeal all the benefits of obama care, the things that help provide affordable health care to millions more americans. but you know what, they keep the savings in obama care, and if you were to repeal obama care today, their budget would not be in balance. now, kevin has said that our budget will never balance. we believe that our p
it's like john boehner's position, he can't do a deal with obama on the budget or the tea party throw him overboard. chris: before we get this here, can anyone think we can establish and hold in this country a policy of containment, have the weapons, warn not to use them? >> no. chris: the syrian question, do you get a sense that we're talking about under this president, barack obama, of using u.s. forces to do air strikes? are we that close? >> two key political figures in the senate this week called on the president to create a no fly zone over northern syria, carl levin, a democrat senator and senator john mccain. behind them are a growing number of people in the state department, in the administration. i think the principle opposition of that is the white house and the president himself. when you have drown a red line, if the evidence is clear that the syrians have used chemical weapons, he is going to have to act, chris. you shouldn't make any mistake. he has to act. he doesn't want to. he is afraid of getting drawn in. you need to watch very carefully what they say about the evi
controlled senate passed a federal budget doctor president obama's tenure. it has no chance of passing the gop house. it was passed at 5:00 a.m. saturday morning by 50-49. four democrats voted against it and one abstained. republicans wasted no time in attacking it. according to a statement by senator jeff sessions, the content of the plan, the majority has now approved demonstrates why they were unwilling to revile it for so long. as the budget wars wage on, president obama is expected to sign a resolution this week to keep the government funded throughout september. that locks into place the much-hated and did he say speed sequester, meaning there will be a lot of pain to go along with the sure to be drown out budget process. lets bring in robert reich his best selling e book, beyond outrage is now available in paper back. it is required reading. welcome back to the show. >> good evening. >> how big a deal is it that the senate democrats actually passed a budget for the first tile in four years? >> i think it's very important symbolically. the democrats have been talking about a budg
to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit
obama from earlier in the week talking about the budget and the fact that we basically need to raise more revenue. then we will hear from senator john tune. let's go with tape number one. >> i voted for the first three nominees by the president. partisanship.out i have allowed the president to take his political appointees, but i will not sit quietly and let him shred the constitution. i cannot sit at my desk quietly and let the president say that he will kill americans on american soil who are not actively attacking a country. the country needs more senators who care about liberty. but if mr. paulus to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than -- but if mr. paul wants to be taken serious a, he needs to do more than -- he needs to know more about what he is talking about. >> ok, that was not president obama. we talked earlier this week about this gigolo story. senator mccain did not have quite the respect for senator paul's filibuster as many others did. what is your take on what happened last week? >> i think senator paul is one of the most fascinating figures in the republican p
to ones they've passed before. this one repeals obama care completely out of this budget blueprint, but retains the revenue lines for the future. let's say obama care increased certain taxes. the ryan budget allowed that revenue. it does balance the budget in 10 years while his past did in 30 years. the balancing is key that the republicans are going to be pounding away for several months going toward the 2013 mid term elections. michael: hearing that, we listen to ryan, boehner i listen to what you're saying about obamacare you and i both know the reality that this is not going to pass the senate. what is this had muted ecstasy we are hearing out of ryan and boehner over this ryan budget passing and the government shutdown being averted? >> well, there's a lot of misconceptions about what these budgets are. they're largely political documents meant to set fort the vision of a party. they're not at all setting spending projections for the government. the is that the, the democrats in the senate are going to pass their own budget that has vastly different spending priorities and it
that takes the obama care the affordable budget act and destroy it is. to not even call it a starting position, is a wrong thing to do senator murray, they're not going to raise new revenue right awach. republicans have a point, democrats have a point. there are three things they can do that doesn't cost any money there may be disagreement here. but it's producing jobs. approve the keystone pipeline, your own state department said it's okay. that wril be a subject for great discussion and debate in a few minutes. >> i think the notion of some tax reform, democrats have agreed to capping some deductions, the republicans like to see some changes in corporate tax rates, we can probably find a deal on that sooner than some of the other things, which might help prolong both howard and james, i think accurately spoke to it. this economy is moving in the right direction. >> james, let me ask you a question. i think to a certain degree -- look, blame can go around on both sides of the aisle. but two some degree there's a false equivalency that house democrats and house republicans are equal i
democrats. >>> with president obama set to release his own budget when lawmakers return in early april, is compromise in the cards? new york's jonathan shay doesn't think so writing parties can't find the middle ground, because the middle ground doesn't exist. hmm, i don't call that optimism, josh. >> well i think first most important thing to note about these amendments is none are going to become law. because the budget is not going to become law. what part of the deal from the fiscal cliff deal a few months ago was that the senate democrats had to pass a budget in order to get a debt ceiling increase. they'll pass a budget. the house passed a budget. in theory what they're supposed to do is reconcile the two of them, come up with a compromise and make that budget the law. that's not going to happen, this was the end. this bill is going to die and there's no implication for keystone, excel, abortion or anything else. it's symbolic. >> quoting myself, it's a statement of priorities. and the fact that the republicans are still trying to litigate the issue of the affordable care act, st
to finish its budget. president obama has missed his budget deadline four out of the last five years, and the new bill would prevent some white house staffers from getting paid until the president submits his budget. senator john cornyn presented the bill. how would the plan work? >> under the law the president is required to submit his budget the first monday in february, that was february the 4th. he didn't do it and now he tells us we'll get it in april. in the meantime, the house and senate will have already acted so the president's rendered himself irrelevant and the american people really don't know what his position is and his leadership position in terms of what our fiscal priorities should be. so, this would dock the pay of the people responsible for preparing it. this is really a shot across the bow, but one to try to get his attention and their attention to try to get them to do what the law requires. >> i would think the opposing party wn not have him involved in the process. if he wants to exempt himself out of the process not meeting the deadline. by the way an earlier
going. >> let's move on to washington, and president obama expected to sign a budget this week, and pretty good news for investors this is not what he wanted. automatic spending cuts stay in place. new spending on roads and bridges and universal pre-school. all that have off the table. new tax increases nowhere to be found and all of this coming out on a friday afternoon. long after everybody went home for the weekend, and hardly the market obama victory. and that you can about that more. and now this. and the third anniversary of the signing of obamacare in law and the senate overwhelmingly to repeal the tax on medical devices and higher insurance premiums next year. and "varney & company" says this law looks like it's unravelling. is that wishful thinking? in our next hour, one of the foremost authorities and critics of obamacare will answer that question, are we stuck with it? i think you're going to like her answer to this one coming up later. now, cyprus, they have seized private wealth, and principal, destroyed cyprus as a tax haven. and overseas tax haven, that's a conte
simpson-bowles, and they could never openly clear for obama care or the ryan budget. and the debt also -- >> hopes for a grand bargain were dashed. >> yes, the same thing, it is unexamined on some level. secondarily, if you say deficit reduction, the partisan are leeched out. we are talking about whether it will work to balance the budget. if along the way 35 million become uninsured, that's sad but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effe
? congresswoman marsha blackburn joins me to discuss the ongoing federal budget debates. and president obama was riding high in january. not so much anymore. a couple of weeks ago senator rand paul conducted african old-fashion filibuster. he spock for 13 hours demanding answers about government policy and use of drones. he was harshly criticized by other republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham. the end result, ron paul clearly helped his cause 67% of republican voters have a favorable opinion. nipe points since the filibuster. mccain and graham don't fair as well. as congress considers what to do about the federal budget, 62% of voters nationwide are concerned they will raise taxes too much. only 29% worry they won't raise them enough. on another topic 50% of americans want to break up the nation's biggest banks. 23% are opposed. riding some of this is the fact these banks receive huge subsidies from the federal government in the form of loan guarantees. 76% of americans want those subsidies brought to an end. and, of course, there's still lin
.4%. and the budget balances. but president obama says he's not interested in balancing the budget. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget, he says. and i know my colleagues, they use the word "balanced." now, i said earlier that they used the word "balanced" tonight 14 times. i've been corrected. 24 times, i believe, already tonight my colleagues have used the word "balanced" in relation to this budget that never balances and never will balance. because they're not concerned about balancing the budget. that is not what it's about with them. they think bringing the budget into balance, like most states have to do, all cities and counties have to do, that this is austerity. oh, we can't have austerity. that might hurt the government, somebody might lose their job, they no longer would be paid to do some worthless job that doesn't produce anything, but we have to keep paying them anyway, because it would be austere to cut that. senator harkin said in february, "we have the richest nation in the world. if we're so rich, why are we so broke?" is it a spending problem? no, it's because we hav
no time on the house floor pointing fingers at president obama for the budget standstill. >> the president has an opportunity during this critical debate to come forward and to help make this part of his legacy like it has become part of the clinton legacy. >> he gets his ncaa bracket in on time, but still no budget. >> mike, good day to you. third time the house is voting on the ryan budget. you have house speaker boehner giving his reading. what is different this time around, especially when it comes to the politics of it all? >> i'll tell you, alex, there's something remarkable going here in congress. not only is there passionate debate, there is finger pointing going on back and forth. that goes without saying on capitol hill. but it's followed by actual votes in the house and in the senate. let's starts with the positive here. at least there's one positive aspect to this. the united states government no longer faces a threat of shutdown next week on the 27th. that's when the so-called continuing resolution that funds the government was set to run out. both the house and the senate wit
veered into claims, false ones, that the obama white house budget was loaded with lavish perks, including a staff just to walk the first dog. here's dana's exchange with ms. bachmann. >> what i want to ask you about is the fact you said he had -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker, which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster. >> you also made specific accusations about the president spending money that other presidents also made. >> the real issue is there are four americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with the secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> i think that's an important point. i think that's an important point but this is another -- >> -- the president of the united states didn't care about those four americans and they were killed. that's the point. >> but if you want to focus on that -- >> w. we want to focus on national security. that's it, dana. that's what's important. >> -- then why bring up the other thin
." the republican-controlled house passed the budget this week that repeals and defunds obama care, but in the senate, a measure to repeal obama care was voted down. yuma? >> molly, thank you very much. >>> overseas now, and growing concerns in syria after rulers this week of a possible chemical weapons attack in that country. this video was released by syrian government which claims it shows victims of a rebel chemical weapons attack that claim has not been independently verified at this time. but president obama has said that the use of chemical weapons would be "a game changer." so is it time for the u.s. to step in and use military force? joining us now for a fair and balanced debate, democratic congressman adam schiff and republican congressman peter king. gentlemen, welcome. great to see you both today. >> good to see both of you. >> congressman king, let me begin with you. the president calls this a game changers, if confirmed that sir gentleman using chemical weapons right now. what does that specifically mean to you? >> well, first of all if they are using them, and it's b
. will charm be enough to bridge the differences in the battle of the budget? president obama reaches out to all members of congress just as house republicans and senate democrats come out with dramatically different blueprints for our fiscal future. what are the chances for a compromise? we will ask two is senators leading the debate, democrat dick durbin and republican bob corker. then, republican at a crossroads. as conservative activists gather in washington, gop leaders argue about the future of the party. we'll discuss differences within the gop with matt kibbie of freedom works and former congressman steve latourette of the republican mainstream partnership. >>> the u.s. responds to north korean threats by beefing up its missile defense as the president heads to israel. we will ask our sunday panel whether mr. obama has the right answers to foreign policy challenges around the world. and our power player of the week. a celebrity chef combines the classic with the cutting edge. all right now on "fox news sunday." >> chris: hello again and happy st. patrick's day from fox news in was
. in 2008 they passed it for half a year, hoping president obama would get elected. the republican budget is $22 billion less than the spending level. down 1.6% -- 0.6%. democrats want to spend $3 $3.7,815,000,000,000,000. $162 billion or 4.5% more than spending this year. the graemes want to spend $184 billion more than the republicans do. they want to spend $97 billion more than the forecast. we have a process of approach ration bill. they will do the work. they will end up with different numbers. go to the conference committee. they will are have chance to iron it out. does it guarantee it's ironed out? no. but we have a normal process where give and take is likely to occur than if we have something trying to be imposed from the white house or the top of the congress. >> shannon: we're waiting for president's budget. he is required to give it by 4 of february and now it's april. amazing that he has failed to meet the scatchtory -- but on the other hand this could be useful because house and senate says we can't wait for the president. do the business ourselves. >> pal ryan and patty mu
. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hss, in front of one of the meetings in washington last week, i should say, said that he's hoping that it doesn't end up as a third world plan. the implementation is seriously problematic and don't pretend that it doesn't need to be addressed. >> you're actually a great person to talk about this. as i mentioned, you were also a medical doctor. i want to get your reaction to something that representative michele bachmann said ab
and his administration and obama had to pull us out of that. nobody was complaining about hutdown and all these problems that happened. host: we'll leave it there. guest: republicans were hitting deficit spending that the budget that the cr isn't addressing the deficit problem. you put two words on a credit card and didn't pay for them and that's why we have deficit. the war funding is an interesting element. it was a fight between democrats and republicans. democrats cut spending. how they arrived at savings in their bument and republicans said those numbers aren't realistic. host: trnt republicans say thrg have been increases in spending by the obama administration at pushed the debt from five or six years ago guest: how much debt there was when president obama came to office and how much debt there is now. that is the consistent argument it's getting worse. when you compare the ryan budget to the senate democrats budget there is a different pace of spending, both of them increase spending over time but the democrats by a lot more. host: go ahead bob. caller: we won't really know what's
point. we know what president obama's priorities are in the budget. he's been talking about it nonstop for his first term and nonstop during this campaign. and by the way, the majority of americans, the american public, agree with his priorities on the budget. it's one of the reasons why he got re-elected. and so i think right now the focus moving forward is going to be where can we come together? amy made an interesting point about how ted cruz and rand paul did not go with this budget because it wasn't conservative enough. i think republicans have to focus on the fact that they have to get with priorities of the american people. american people agree that there does need to be additional tax revenue on the table before we completely put the hatchet on programs that middle class americans and that poorest and most vulnerable are programs they depend upon. it's all about moderation and how we do this with actually compromising and people like ted cruz and rand paul are not for compromise. the majority of americans are. >> i'm sorry your princeton tigers aren't in it. ivy league upset f
're going nowhere fast, and essentially, the question is is president obama going to put forth a budget, stick his neck out, modernize entitlements? guess what, if not, that 17 trillion is 20 trillion by the time he picks his next ncaa bracket. neil: what worries me on the left and the right. when i hear boehner and paul ryan say on this the president's right there's no immediate debt crisis, i understand what they are saying. i'm not taking it out of context, saying there's not a run on the banking system or foreigners pulling money out. i understand that. they are more or less getting ammunition to the president to say, what's the rush? the president said spending is not a problem. nancy pelosi said we don't have to address entitlements, and reid says, if we address entitlements, which we're not, we'll address medicare aid. do you know what i'm saying? we might have lost him. well, he got to hear part of the speech. the problem is, folks, we have a situation where if you ignore the problem, it goes away, or you don't even acknowledge the problem, there is no problem. my apologies to y
disability. i think it goes beyond just fixing the budget. as far as health care and obama care, as far as going beyond fixing the budget like health care. i live in a very economically depressed area. you almost have to be wealthy or have real good insurance where you can see a dentist. that should be included with health care. guest: you mentioned medicare and social security. these are things they will talk about in the next few months. we talk about changing the cpi or the way payments are made or the eligibility age or changing medicare as a voucher system. these are things they will talk about and it goes beyond the budget and it is part of the budget. without these changes, they don't think they can have federal help. host: in "the baltimore sun" - guest: that's a big complaint we heard during the budget process produced -- the republican said in the first year of the democratic budget would do with very little to fix the problems. there was a proposal to switch to biennial budgeting. having a long-term plan that means something that they can change the next year takes broad cons
in obama care. if you would repeal obama care today, their budget would not be in balance. >> you saw him there, the democratic congressman, the top democrat on the committee. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> in the past hour, you announced what you're calling a house democratic budget alternative. first of all, what is it and how is it different from the previous plan offered by the senate? >> well, it is similar to the senate plan. in other words, we also focus on job creation and accelerating the economy right now. then we address the long term budget deficit in a balanced way where we ask for shared responsibility as opposed to the republican plan which provides another tax break wind fall to very wealthy people at the end of everybody else. the expense of the middle class, the expense of commitments to seniors. so our focus right now is to number one, do no harm to the economy. number two, invest in a jobs plan that will help put people back to work. whether building roads or bridges or infrastructure or other things important to our economy. >> why will it take until 2040
on some small things. they agreed to biannual budgeting. they actually took apart a piece of the obama health care bill. there was some small individual pieces even of bipartisan agreement. that's the good news. the bad news is that when you compare what the senate has done with what the house has done, we're looking at about a $5 trillion difference in those two budgets. it is really difficult to see how they're going to get to a place of agreement on a huge spread like that. this is not a group of people that's good at splitting the difference. the house gets rid of the obama health care bill entirely. the senate, as you said, has a trillion dollars in tax increases. i don't really know where they find the middle ground in there but at least they have a budget to work with and that is at least progress these days. >> okay. fro gres is agree, but susan, republicans who have been clamoring for senate democrats to at least propose a budget, zero republicans voted for it. is it all an exercise in futility. >> four democrats voted against it, too. so they've had four years and harry reid
paul ryan has got a budget. barack obama hasn't released one yet but, i don't know what the schedule will look like on the budget going forward it is still, it is controlled chaos right now. bill: what i see on the calendar is maybe late summer, if you want to get a deal together. i think that is what he was refering to on sunday. but you also have paul ryan saying that the debt is not an immediate crisis. and that was pretty much a headline that came out of one of his interviews. i will talk about john boehner in a moment here. how did you remark on the way ryan categorized that? >> look, i think he is basically right. technically we're not in a debt crisis. we don't have world markets plummeting. cats are not sleeping with dogs. it is not armageddon which is what a real debt crisis looks like. cypress is in a debt crisis but as paul ryan likes to say, the debt crisis that is coming and it is coming is the most predictable crisis in american history. the way i think about it, like being diagnosed with a time more. the doctor says, it is stage 1, it is not a crisis but you have to ch
budget is kind of like issuing your final four pick about april. >> greta: here is a question for you. how does president obama manage to get the basketball brackets done on time every year, but miss the budget deadline by law? and joining us senator. >> i think his basketball picks are good news stories and his budget is is a lousy news story for him and so he's trying to do a good news story. >> if he can find time to do the brackets on the basketball. >> it's good pr to show i'm a real human being. do you realize he's never received one vote for the previous budgets. if he can pick one winner right in the brackets, he's trumped and what he's able to do on his own budget. why he's doing this? it's a good soft news story. his budget is going to be met with no support for democrats and republicans. >> greta: he said things come up and that's why he missed the february 4th deadline and the march deadline and the things come up, also come up for the the house and senate. both the house and senate managed to come up with a budget. >> the president of the united states has never seen one
trillion nearly. and if all this is not enough number crunching for you president obama is expected to release his budget plan in early april. of course, we will take a look and report. >>> europe holding its collective breath time as the nation of cypress teethers on bankruptcy. a lot of wealthy europeans particularly russians park their money in cyprus bank. if the financial system fails. they will be asked to foot the bill for the bailout of the bank. we started seeing how they might pay with talk of a 20% tax on bank deposits. a chance the banks to collapse by tuesday there. >> reporter: harris that is absolutely right. unless there is a bailout deal and reportedly that could be closer tonight. as angry protesters kept up the pressure outside of government offices officials reportedly agreed to those levies on bank accounts. i'm curious is a run on the banks rather still expected even if they reach a bailout dial at this point? >> yeah, harris. that is a fear. we have been and they are nervous about the money in the banks and seven say they are planning to go to the bank doors a
bothered to even offer a budget in the senate. president obama has not even submitted a budget at all yet. where is the president's budget? it was due on february 4. now the white house says that they will finally produce a budget, oh, maybe sometime in april. well, that's more than two months late. so what we have to work with here is an unserious budget plan written by senate democrats. it's inadequate to the challenges that we face as a country, it is out of touch with what the american people want, and it is a slap in the face to the hardworking taxpayers who will have to pay for it. if president obama truly believes wend to take a balanced approach to our budget, he should publicly oppose this wildly unbalanced budget that harms america. we need a serious budget, mr. president, one that grows the economy, not government bureaucracy. thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. mr. alexander: mr. president, i'd like to speak for a few minutes about 11 million low-income children in america, children that all of us would like to help, children that i would like to see have a chance to
, president obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other president. he's now missed it four out of five times. in the 90 years between 1923 and 2013, president obama is the only president to miss the deadline two years in a row. he's the only president who missed the deadline three out of four years in his first term and he holds the record for the longest delay, 98 days, maybe he's -- maybe that's the record, he's trying to beat. so i want to commend again my colleagues in the congressional black caucus for bringing forward a budget. i think it's extremely important that we have all sorts of different ideas out here on the floor to be able to debate and have people take a perspective on and have the opportunity to vote yay or nay on, i would respectfully suggest, however, that their budget move this is country in the wrong direction, not the right direction and we'll urge opposition to their budget proposalened i reserve the balance of our time. the chair: the gentleman reserves, the gentleman from virginia. mr. scott: i yield to a member of the budget committee, ms. moore. the
was the first guy to call president obama a socialist, has been critical of the ryan budget. >> it continues to grow the government, to grow debt. >> today, he went even further. in a "new york times" op-ed entitled paul ryan's ax isn't sharp enough -- it fails to address run away government spending, the most pressing problem facing our nation. brown advocates for the elimination of the energy parts. this guy wants to take the federal government out of the education and toss out a few grants to states to handle everything from medicaid to infrastructure. brown is also a member of the republican study committee, a group of house conservatives proposing a more aggressive alternative to the ryan plan and promising to balance the budget in just four years. the op-ed comes just a day after the rnc's autopsy report. yet that, too, is getting attacked from the right for not sticking to so-called conservative ideals. >> the republicans are just totally bamboozled right now and they are entirely lacking in confidence. they think they got landslided and they didn't. the republican party lost because
like president bush the younger had a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. with the nation now owing close to $17 trillion, i wish the president were more like pope francis, who has a cardinal in argentina rejected of all the lavish perks. mr. obama is entitled to protection, convenience and comfort as he he runs the nation. congresswoman bachmann and all the opponents of president obama should zero in on what's really important, the president's failure to deal with out-of-control spending and his core belief that america is not a fair country. that's what's important. not who is walking the presidential dog. by the way, that's the gardner who walks the dog. and he has always walked the dogs. and how many movies the obamas watch? jimmy carter watched 300 movies. might have been why that was so out-of-control back then. it's long past time for partisans on both the right and the left to cut the nonsense and look at things clearly. we have got huge problems in america. the president i
a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he says bachmann is playing small ball with the president and can't backup her criticism. >>> to the politics behind the gun control debate. democrats in the senate have decided not to put a ban on assault weapons in their proposed gun control bill, that's because it's not likely to pass. they're putting more of their efforts into required background checks. vice president joe biden says he's not giving up the fight. >> this is not about anybody's constitutional right to own a weapon. for all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say the politics is too hard, how can they say that? when you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them and those six teachers and administrators. >> gloria borger joining me now from washington. gloria, what's going on behind the scenes on capitol hill with these gun measures? >> well, if a ban on assault weapons were easy to get, they would have renewed it when it expir
, i want to ask you, you use the phrase, the senate budget not being a viable plan. >> that was the "washington post's" assessment of it. >> the same criticism has been labeled to the paul ryan budget, which uses as part of its calculation, defunding broadly, president obama's health care law. which i think, i think we probably can agree, is not likely to happen. if both sides are offering budget proposals that are nonviable. how do we get to a budget proposal that is viable, do you expect that to happen? >> well, i think it's important for our country that we do. and the thing that's, that i think is so important about paul ryan's budget is that it actually becomes a balanced situation. where you have a balanced budget. the democrat proposal -- never balances, not this year, not in ten years. never. and american families realize they have to live within their means, they can't spend money they don't have. they understand the concept of a balanced budget and i was back in wyoming last weekend, the people at home still believe that over half of all the money they sen
